EMPERORS, CITIES, MONTHS, TEARS & SONGS
In this sixth volume, Fables & Reflections, you will find an illustrated short story right in the beginning of it, even before the introduction, written by Gene Wolfe (which by the way, no offense, but it’s quite spoiling, so in this ocassion, I recommend that if you still want to read the introduction, it’s better to do it after reading the TPB, to enjoy more the surprises contained here.
Hey, I don’t want to bore you. Are you interested in dreams?
You might say that.
There is nothing wrong is reading fiction, but having in mind that real life can be as fascinating, fantastic and almost impossible to believe than fiction.
Sometime we read fiction because we think that life is too ordinary, too real, but if you wander through history you will find so many chapters defying logic and common sense, and yet, they’re real.
Reality isn’t a bad thing, sometimes people find fiction like that land where any dream can come true, but reality has the same chance, if you embrace it as well.
What’s real? What’s fiction?
If something is real, does it really need fact to support it? It’s real, after all, therefore it is, not matter if you believe it or not. So, if you really believe in something that born in fiction, and may other do too, then isn’t that fiction become something real in this world?
You shouldn’t trust the storyteller; only trust the story.
That’s the power of believe.
And if you believe that a man can fly, there is no limits, boundaries, even thermidors, to stop anything to become real.
If it’s real in your heart, how can be less real in your mind? Does the mind any right to say what’s real in the heart?
If only you believe in something, is it less real? Galileo Galilei was the only one who believes the “insane” concept of that Earth was orbiting around the Sun and not the contrary. Who was right at the end?
His madness keeps him sane.
And do you think he is the only one, my sister?
Neil Gaiman shows us in this sixth volume, Fables & Reflections, how wonderful is real life, of course, why not adding some dreams into the formula, but at the end, at the bottom of the stories, they are based on real events, not matter if you can’t believe them.
An emperor in the United States.
Headless marionettes made of real bodies.
Calendars rebooted and months renamed.
Cities impossible to forget.
Are you always so pale?
That depends on who’s watching.
When a story tell you right away what to think of it, when it tells you in plain sight what’s the message of it, well, it’s not like it makes it wrong, but certainly keeps away the reader a bit from the story itself. Neil Gaiman is such master storyteller that in many cases (and you will find formidable examples here) that he won’t tell you what to think of the story, he won’t explained you the message of the story, he won’t print the morality about it. You will have to do it, and therefore, the story becomes a gift to you, the story will become of your own, since it will have your own interpretation, different from the one thought by anybody else, so those stories will become part of you, will have a piece of you.
Death was a little older than Dream. Things had the potential to die before they had the potential to dream.
Leadership never is easy. People tend to think, to hope, that their leaders know what they are doing. But aren’t they as human as their followers? And you will amaze how many leaders now watched as insane dictators, they thought that they were doing the right thing. Hell is paved with good intentions is the common saying, and it is right, since while some of those dictators were plainly crazy, they didn’t reach the top alone, many crazier people should help them to get there.
What’s wrong in a self-appointed mad leader who doesn’t do any harm to anybody compared with a mass-appointed mad leader who does fill the streets with blood?
Leaders, as any other person, they are hard to judge, since you may know what they do in public, but hardly you will ever know what they did in private, how were their days before of becoming leaders, and what kind of things they endure. It’s not a matter of justifying, but at least to understand.
If cities are full of people, how can’t they have a soul? The very name of certain city is able to feel with certain emotions the heart and mind of a person. Even those cities can be already far away from their golden ages, but the romance about them will be eternal. The emotion won’t die.
You are a god.
I am not a god. But I am here as a favor to a god.
All gods begin in my realm, Caius Octavius. They walk your world for a span, and when they are old they return to my world, to die.
You never know what tomorrow has for you. Today you may be well, having the time of your life, and tomorrow can be just the opposite, that’s why seize the day is so important, and also how you treat other people.
Parenthood is never easy. Children don’t come with an instructions’ book. And you never stop to be parent not matter how old are your kids, even if they got married and now they have kids on their own. Sometimes (if not always) they think that their parents never were as they, that their parents never had to endure what they are, so it’s important to let them know that parents know what they are dealing with, since parents very likely were in the same situation before.
Love is a matter of trust. Love doesn’t need eyes. Therefore, if you really love someone, you don’t need to try to look back. Love is there, right behind you. You have to trust, with close eyes on it, or...
...it isn’t really love. Maybe something else, but not love.
Neil Gaiman takes us in a fantastic journey melding lore and folklore, from many cultures, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Roman, American, European, and from many time periods, since the very beginning of history as well as visiting times of terror and times of wonder.
Neil Gaiman can be calm since the rooks will fly away without making any harm, and after that...
...he will fly too.
